Driver faces two charges

Otago Daily Times - - Regions -

A Queen­stown man will ap­pear in the re­sort’s district court on Mon­day fac­ing charges of drink­driv­ing and driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied.

Se­nior Sergeant Paula Enoka, of Queen­stown, said the man was ar­rested by po­lice early yes­ter­day.

His ve­hi­cle had bro­ken down on Man St, so he called an as­so­ciate to come and help him.

The man then al­legedly drove his as­so­ciate’s ve­hi­cle, tow­ing his own.

A breath test gave a read­ing of 752mcg and in­quiries re­vealed he was a dis­qual­i­fied driver.

Sub­se­quently, both ve­hi­cles had been im­pounded, Snr Sgt Enoka said.
